Testing

Residence hall students who are new to campus, or are returning to campus housing after a holiday break, must test within 72 hours of their return to campus.

  • Asymptomatic individuals who are awaiting test results may go about their normal campus activities while observing public health protocols.
  • Residential students traveling out of the area for break are strongly encouraged to get a PCR test no more than 72 hours prior to commencing travel back to Boise. PCR test results from a non-university provider should be emailed to publichealth@boisestate.edu. Anyone who tests positive prior to traveling should delay travel plans until their isolation period is complete.

Students who do have symptoms or test positive should follow isolation or quarantine guidelines laid out by their health care provider and/or Boise State’s public health officer.

Additional information about COVID testing, isolation and quarantine can be found on the health and wellness section this site.
